The Vivid festival attracts people from all creative industries for over 100 events, and is one of the largest festivals in New South Wales.
Sony is bringing Naughty Dog developer Ricky Cambier to Sydney for the event, hosting a panel to talk game design, story narrative, production and just what it takes for a large triple A game like The Last Of Us to come to market from a creative perspective.
“Naughty Dog has a rich history in developing critically acclaimed videogames,” said Jess Scully, Festival Director of Vivid Ideas, the event where the panel will take place. “[T]his panel will lift the lid on the leading creative work behind making such projects a reality.”
It’s a great partnering for Vivid to be bringing Naughty Dog talent in particular out to Sydney for the event. There are only a handful of studios which would be a good fit for a festival like Vivid, and Naughty Dog’s creative direction has certainly put it in that category.
